The NBA confirmed Thursday there were two missed in the final seconds of the Golden State Warriors’ 118-113 Game 3 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
In the league’s official Last 2 Minute Report (L2M), it was announced LeBron James should have been called for a foul with 12.6 seconds remaining in regulation because he grabbed Andre Iguodala‘s shoulder “and affects his ability to retrieve the loose ball.”
The other missed call came with 3.9 seconds remaining. According to the L2M, Kevin Durant should have been whistled for a shooting foul on Kevin Love because he made “contact to Love’s body that affects his jump shot.” At that point in the game, the Cavaliers trailed by five.
The report made no reference to James’ accidental kick to Iguodala’s groin area, which came on the same play between the two referenced in the L2M.
On Thursday, Iguodala told ESPN.com’s Chris Haynes he didn’t even realize James had kicked him when it happened.
“You know what’s crazy? I did not feel it,” he said. “When I look back at it, I was like, ‘Oh, I didn’t even know this happened.’ Somebody told me about it.”
The Warriors will attempt to send the Cavaliers packing Friday night when Game 4 gets underway from Cleveland.
